Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta
The spectacular Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta, hosted by the MHYC, will be held on 1 - 2 March 2008.
Now in its third year, this highly-successful Regatta will feature over 250 yachts racing on Sydney Harbour, with fleets from all of the major Sydney clubs represented.
The Regatta will also host the 2nd leg of the highly competitive Audi IRC Australian Championship. With many sailors vying for this national crown, the Audi Sydney Harbour Regatta will attract the most spectacular yachts from prestigious IRC Racers to the highly popular international classes. This colourful spectacle draws 20 categories of racing yachts, in fierce competition over 7 course areas of the Harbour.
By far the richest prize in Australian sailing, the overall winner of the Regatta will be awarded the brand new Audi A4 sedan – a car which will be launched Downunder in April 2008. To win the car, crews must compete for the prize at the “Audi Final Challenge” at Eastern Creek Raceway.
The event launch will be celebrated with a Sponsors and Competitors Cocktail Party on 12 February 2008 at Middle Harbour Yacht Club.
At the weekend-long ASHR in March, spectators will enjoy a colourful feast of sails from various vantage points on the harbour foreshores and viewing craft on the water. Shoreside, activities will include a Henri Lloyd Fashion Parade and beach parties with live entertainment.
The Regatta will conclude with the Official Prize Presentation at MHYC on Monday 3rd March commencing at 6pm.
Scheduled on the lead weekend of Sydney Harbour Week www.sydneyharbourweek.com, the event has all the ingredients of an iconic Sydney event engaging the participation and interest of sailors and the general public.
